only thing that hasn't turned up is the "Baccy" Father sent about 2 months ago I begin to think some one must have swiped it!
Glad to hear you have been taking in one or two shows; I don't know what Victoria would do without Hinks to get up these amateur performances, he is great at that. You were fortunate in having Cyril Maude out there. I see I've not been the only one taking in theatres lately! I haven't heard any further news of Sholto am anxiously waiting to hear of his arrival, I hope he will let someone know of his whereabouts so that I can get in touch with him. I heard from Florence a couple of days ago, she wrote in very good form, and I am glad to say things are quiet at present where she is.
Well Mother, my very best love to you and Pa,
from your loving son Erroll
Many thanks for "Life" which I got yesterday, it seems rather a good number.
